♦ Hunter & Ruby ♦ HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
We atleast want some signifigant changes made to the new DC but the old DC was nice. Not sure it's totally necassary to go back.
Riley Chipper Ruby ~~Find us on Facebook~~
This is what the DC meant to me....When I first joined I was so excited when that first blog came in. It was from Riley FBI agent! He welcomed us to the DC and said he was a Riley too! I thought "how cool is this"??? Then we made more friends and I do mean friends. Not just acquaintances but REAL LIFE LONG FRIENDS!!! Rico Suave had just past away before we joined and I feel that we even knew him by the blogs of grief and memories that everyone shared about him and his sweet mom Joy. Then Dos Man passed away. Oh how we LOVED his stories. They made us LOL every day! (thank you Veda) We attended his "funeral" on-line and I couldn't believe I was crying my eyes out over a pup that we have never met in person, but that friendship was just as real as any and we felt the loss of a true friend.
Then we also attended a WAKE for our dear friend Siog from Ireland. ( Hugs Maeve ) One summer, "all us friends" took a trip to Europe through the pages of the DC. The trip was called "Dogs Gone Wild" European Vacation!! It lasted an entire month!! Then there was Camp Doggie!! One of the Best Summer Camps we ever attended. The activities were so much fun! Avatar contests and photo contests and photo parade pages for each holiday! Again through the pages of the DC. These were all run by our friends getting together except for Camp Doggie. It was one of the BEST ideas from the editors on the DC along with Dog College!! Thank you for those activities! So much FUN on the old DC.
Since that 9th day in Sept of '07 that we joined, we have been to many "funerals" Vacations, Parties, Camp, been to 5 meetups and met with people and pups from Fl, Oh, NJ, NY, TN, MD, IA, IL, WV, GA and even Canada! Hope we didn't forget anyone.
We mail each other gifts and cards and know each others families, and talk on the phone with each other ALL because of the wonderful friendships made on the DC! We even have a Birthday page, and Dotd page (thanks Diane & Tx Trio plus) and Dotm page and campaigners to help out pups along the way to celebrate and help earn their badges for their pages. (thanks Noni Patricia and Tiffany) Yes the old DC was a wonderful place to visit with real friends, ( so many more names than we can mention ) and we think it was great the way it was. We may have lost our old DC but we will never loose the friendships made there. And we still have our memories of the wonderful times we all spent together there. We even have a friendship club that we call the FC of the DC! (Thank you Kay & Rufus)! We do card showers for people we don't even know just to bring a smile to their faces and make a difference in someones' day. We give memorials to our friends who have lost a loved one. The FC will still go on strong due to the friendships that were made on the DC. DC town (as lots of us called it) was indeed a very special place to visit. We will miss it tremondously, but the friendships will go on.
Thanks DC, it was sure fun while it lasted. WOOFS From Riley, Chipper, Ruby & Momma Julie

Please bring back the old DC..we have made so many friends online and met so many in person from the website. 4 years of happiness and also the loss of our Angel Ashleigh and Angel Shamus over those years. Our DC friends helped us through support and love. Everything was easy to find and view all at once on our page..pictures, poems, info about us etc. We can't invite friends now because 1/2 the pop up page is below our visible laptop screen. Seems so silly to have start all over again after 4 years..too many friends over the years to count. We don't want a second FB..we want DC back. Once the DOTM run is over Chewie the end of June, we will off DC along with MANY other of our DC friends. We want our family DC together again!!! Brie,Tyler,Bentley and Sandy

We loved the old DC, on which it was easy to locate friends and find new friends. We could display our photos proudly in the galleries of each of our dogs' web pages and quickly locate the contests, Top Dog, aka DOTM, have great contests like the Avatar Contest, the Photo Parades, send in videos for our friends to see, and see new members who needed to be welcomed to the DC. It used to be a user-friendly website that allowed us to have pages for our living dogs and In Memory pages for those dogs we have lost. It used to be a place where we could feel like our dogs were friends with other members' dogs, and we became friends with their "Moms" and "Dogs", even though we might live far apart. So many friends are now stating that they will no longer be on the DC website because it is difficult to maneuver and extremely confusing. This is NOT FaceBook and there aren't any Zynga games here, so why try to emulate their website? Let's go back to the old, user-friendly DC!
We have been here since October 8, 2008, and hope that things change so we can continue to be here iin 2018!

Well said, Pongo!
Brutus Maximus giving a shout out from Michigan!
Well said Pongo. I hope this page gets the attention of the "powers that be" at DC.
They should hear what we have to say .. what's the point in having a voice if we can not use it. I agree with everyone. I hate the new DC, I miss and love the old DC. they need to listen to the Dog lover's Community (which is us) and give in and give us our old DC site back. One Facebook is enough ..... more
RUFUS~AN ANGEL IN LIFE & NOW AT RAINBOW BRIDGE
We cant believe something so amazing as the old dog channel could turn into something so distant from what it used to be. The Dog Channel brought us all together, we made lifetime friends, have been there through thick and thin, and now Bowtie has seen fit to tear apart something so friendly. We are truly disappointed and to be honest disgusted by their disregard for those of us that have made the dc a wonderful place. Kay and Rufus
Samantha ♥ Thanks to all my Furiends for such a great surprise!! ♥
We agree and are completely disappointed in the new changes that DC have made..It use to be a fun and furiendly place where we met so many wonderful pups and pawrents..and where we supported each other through the good and tough times..and were one big family. Now it's a cold and confusing place..missing all the warmth that the old DC had. We miss our DC family sooo much and we wish we could have the old DC back!... more
Amen Sister!!! Miss ya Rufus and Momma Kay:)
I am a newer member but made friends so quickly due to the friendliness of all the wonderful DC folks. It is so hard to find my friends now and the special flavor of this site has been lost. Some of my new-found friends are now leaving. It is very sad.
Abby...In Loving Memory 7/29/1996-3/15/2014
We too are extremely disappointed in the "new" DogChannel. We have been members for 5 years and honestly can't think of a single thing to say that we like about this new set-up that was just dumped on us. We don't like the way the pages look. We don't like the way the pictures appear to be flattened and from an angle. We don't like every blog we send being on our own pages. That makes trying to find blogs TO us like going on an extremely disorganized treasure hunt. At first we could at least send "private" messages to pups and get "private" messages from them, but the past several days our inbox is so clogged with messages, posts, and blogs from pups we don't even know that it is more difficult to find a message in our inbox than it is to find one on our yards. And of all the things we don't like about this, the thing we like least is we have lost the feeling of family and community we had on the "old DogChannel. DogChannel now is just another site...cold and impersonal with nothing special to offer.
We have read several times that these changes were made based on requests from DC members and while we don't even pretend to know everyone on DC, we have not talked to a single person who was even asked for input, much less asked for the changes that were made, nor have we spoken to a single person who likes this new format. If you are truly listening to the members and what they want, you will bring back the DC we all love and miss so much. Sometimes new isn't better, it is just new and none of us are happy with this new.
Fiona the Fearless : Greetings sweet DC friends. I haven't forgotten you. Tail Wags, Fiona xx
I am a long time DC member and am truly disappointed at how this new version of DC has broken up our little family here. Why weren't the members consulted before this change took place ? I now go on to just vote for DOTM and am happy that at least we have a FB page to socialize with each other. I don't have the time or energy to attempt to figure out the new changes and for what ? No one else wants to deal with it either. Our scrapbooks are gone and why ? Maybe you thought these things weren't pleasingly aesthetic, but we, as long time memebrs, loved the simplicity of our pages. It was a sad day when we went to our beloved DC to only to find a strange , new place that we would never be comfortable in.
As you have heard through message, email and posts all over .. we DO NOT like the new Dog Channel, PLEASE bring back the old DC. As said before - change is not always a good thing and you can see that it definately is not in this situation. And why fix something that is not broke. There was nothing wrong with the old Dog Channel, so why go and mess up a good thing. Now there are so many not liking this change, me included, and talking about leaving. I have been a member for 5 yrs and this is not fair to force this change on us without us dc members having any say in at all. We the members should have something to say about this - we make up the dog channel. I am highly upset to hear that the scrapbooks are gone, even though I sent an email to the web editors and have not heard back yet, but heard it through some friends of the DC .. on top of this whole DC confusion and mess that you created. The best thing, and you have heard many and I hope this time you are listening, PLEASE BRING THE OLD DOG CHANNEL BACK!!! So make us all happy bring it back along with our scrapbooks as well. We loved the old feel and we will never get use to this new crap. I am on the verge of leaving myself as it seems you ignore the voice of the members that make up this site. Do the right thing and change it back!
ANGEL BOBBIE-RBB DOESN'T LIKE NEW DC!!
The old DC was very unique but the new DC is like everything else; confusing, time consuming, cold & impersonal, & hard to figure out! And also We want our scrapbooks back!!!!!!!!
ANNYE DEE-HATE THE NEW DC
We don't like this new DC! We want the old one back!
CHLOE-WANT THE OLD DC BACK
We would like the old DC back. We DO NOT like this new place. It certainly is not fun anymore. We all want our scrapbooks back!!!!!!

Sawyer loves Bella Boo Boxer!
We don't like the new DC! We know that you are aware of the new features that are not liked by many, so we will not list them again. We would like to say that we when we joined DC we very quickly came to feel like we were a part of something very special. We made many wonderful friends and are saddened that many wonderful friends are now leaving due to the "improvements!" In the past, I have joined other dog sites that had similar set ups to the new site and didn't like them. I loved the old DC!
Cotton 17261 Sept.4,1994 - Aug.31,2007
I do not like this new setup one bit. I find it very confusing and have to go and find our friends once again. Bring back the old DC it worked fine the way it was. Sometimes New is not better.
R&R- Bring on Spring
Please bring the old DC back. It was much more fun than the new one.
We would appreciate if you would bring the old DC back. We have very limited time to vote.
Mugsy 27341 ♥ IN LOVING MEMORY~4/15/2002-4/1/2015
Please bring the OLD DC back,it was much more user friendly.With the new DC many are having a problem navigating so are just staying away..it's so sad to lose friends that we've had for many years just because the DC is trying to be like Facebook.
LORNA DOONE MCSNUFF-DON'T LIKE THE NEW DC
We loved the old DC and we sure want it back. This new place is not the same at all. We liked the way it WAS! This new site is very confusing and hard to get around on. And we've all lost touch with our friends!!!
Bella #178688 DC MEMBER SINCE May 20, 2010
Bring back the original dog channel that we all joined and enjoyed...please!
Aaliyah - Oh! My GOODNESS!
I think PACO signed in the wrong place! See! It does get confusing. We don't like all these little formal boxes. We'd like the old friendly site back.
Rosie loves Regis!!!
I don't understand why y'all had to screw up the DC. It wasn't broke so there was no need to fix it!!
Paco - I am a Lucky Dog!
The original site was much easier to manuver around & much more attractive & pet friendly We would love to have it back.
Lola ♥ Daddy's Lil'Princess ♥
Please Bring back our DC!! So many of us are not able to follow it... so confusing...
DC, please go back to the old format. As Muffin Brandon & Peanut said, there are very few people who like this change, compared to we hundreds who want it to change back. There are many members who will be deleting their pages because they dislike this new look so much. You don't have to change back completely .. just go back to the old blogging system, page format and give the entire site the warm look again! We would be so thankful if you would switch back. We appreciate your attempts to help the site, but sadly many of us do not like it, and while we personally do not plan on removing our pages, we know many who will be. Thank you for your time.

We want DOGCHANNEL back!!! No more of this Dogbook! Come on DC, we haven't really seen anyone who likes this, compared to hundreds who don't! DC just is no fun anymore, it's too hard to stay in touch with everyone, and that's the whole point of DC/club dog. At the very least...change the formats on our pages back!
CHANGE DC BACK! The only reason I came on today was to write on here! We miss you DC.....COME BACK!!
~ Chewie loves Khia ~
I wish it was back the way it was. More intimate and friendly. Its so cold and impersonal now!
Please change DC back to the way it was!
